Rivalry Rewind, a FSN Detroit original program captures all of the game day pageantry, intensity and drama of this storied rivalry. This 60 minute â€˜directorâ€™s cutâ€™ version originally premiered as a 30 minute show on FSN the week following the game. The DVD includes expanded pre-game, halftime and post-game footage, much of it exclusive to FSN. Using only field level video, natural sound and Michigan and Michigan Stateâ€™s beloved radio announcers, Rivalry Rewind tells the story of this annual grudge match from the perspective of one who is on the field for the whole game. Fans of both schools will experience the pre-game tailgating, team warm-ups, passionate locker room speeches as well as the euphoria and heartache that define this unofficial state holiday.
Included with this DVD is a bonus 30 minute episode of Spotlight that focuses on the history of the Wolverine/Spartan rivalry. You will hear from virtually everyone that has Michigan blue and Spartan green in their blood including past and current coaches, players, media and historians. This is a fascinating look into how the Michigan/Michigan State rivalry began and why it rises to a boil each football season. This is college football at its best.
